Nails of the Week #31: Matte Lavendar

This is unusual, I know, it's the first Monday of the month and usually I would skip NotW and do a favorites post. Never fear, the favorites are coming tomorrow instead, and there will be a better explanation of the unusual schedule coming soon. Anyways, to continue the matte trend, this time I slapped that stuff over one of my all time favorite nail polishes and called it a day! I'm totally loving this chalkboard effect of matte nails but I must say that my nails tend to chip a lot quicker than they would with just a normal glossy top coat. Is this a common theme when it comes to matte nails or is just the top coat I use?

So two coats of Essie's Warm & Toasty Turtleneck and my OPI Matte Top Coat achieved this look. I'm going to mix it up with some glossy nails soon, or perhaps return to accent nails or even nail art. I'm sitting in a nail polish rut right now, but at the same time I can't stand to have naked nails.
